Served in a Local Option cervoise.

Let's see if Perennial can do the near-impossible by making a mint stout that isn't terrible: It pours a dark black-brown topped by a finger of tan foam. The nose is a blast of York peppermint patties, with a strong current of mint being enveloped by a weaker contingent of chocolate. It's pleasant. The taste begins with some roasted malts, but then goes right into some spearmint, the two never really combining completely or genially. It's not a bad flavor, really, just one that isn't great. The body is a lithe medium, with a light moderate carbonation and a drying finish. Overall, a generally solid mint stout, but I feel the chocolate is far too underplayed and the mint and roast never properly co-habitate and cooperate. Still, not bad, but it shows that a true mint stout success is still unknown to us (or, at least, to me).
